What if I have a broken shutter louver? If the louver is disconnected and drooping from the frame, you likely have a broken louver pin. To mend this you need to take out the pin from both the louver and the stile with a set of needle-nose pliers or a utility knife. Once the damaged pin is extracted, stick the replacement pin base into the same hole in the shutter stile, then slide the louver onto the pin.
